This hip hop instrumental by Dutch producer and DJ Y’Skid features the kind of funky bass and percussion you would expect, but is lead by a manic and at times slightly demented violin.

London producer Ketan Jogia has remixed Welsh folk singer Novo Amor’s track From Gold, augmenting the lush, Bon Iver-like vocals of the original song with more punctuated bass and percussion. A great summer track.
London band Dead Red Sun’s latest song is called Grecian, soon to be released on a two-track EP. Like the previous track by Dead Red Sun that we featured on Dezeen Music Project, Grecian is a wonderfully noisy, muscular instrumental driven by layers of distorted guitars and crashing drums.
Vienna-based musician and producer Noemi Bolojan has remixed American rock band Cage the Elephant’s track Take It Or Leave It, replacing the jagged guitar of the original song with gentle, swooshing synths and shuffling electronic percussion.
This experimental pop song by London artist Yodashe is very musically ambitious, combing glitchy beats with brash, dissonant vocal harmonies in a free-flowing arrangement. But the key is the variety of catchy melodic hooks, which pop up in unexpected places and keep the track engaging throughout.
Blue Room won't make easy background music, but listen carefully and there's lots to enjoy.
